Eat some pears then make mice!

If you buy packs of pears they come in cardboard that it lovely and pear shaped...or mouse shaped! 

You will need - 
  • paint
  • sisscors 
  • pear packet
  • glue

Once chopped up we decorated them with paint.  Older children can try to create a realistic mouse pattern but for younger ones it is all about painting on a different surface.  

Here is one of our finished mice....

We set our mice up around the house to give people a fright!

Pancake day!

So tomorrow is Shrove Tuesday (AKA Pancake day!) and we made a batch today to practice!  I always make Scotch pancakes or drop scones.  These are thicker than normal pancakes and I think they are nicer!  They are also easier to make.

We used this recipe -

The kids enjoyed adding and mixing the ingredients!  When I was cooking them the children did a pancake colouring picture while they waited for their pancake! We used this one - but there are lots of pages available!
